I was not in any of them but the Hyatt looks much more upscale than the radisson although even the Hyatt people said is nothing special.
 I stayed there 4 days, there's no point in staying longer especially that there's no kosher restaurants which usually takes up a big part of your itinerary ;)

I agree that a Sunday to Thursday is perfect for Aruba.

Didn't see this until after I booked, but that's what I'm in for :)

Spending time on DDF does not mean you are knowledgeable, especially if you use your time posting repost the whole time

1. Where did you find such a cheap rate to be able to do a BRG?
2. I am sure you have plenty of Club Carlson points, Why wouldn't you use those for the Radisson and add some points for an upgrade?

I have about 1,000,000, if you want I can trade you for Hyatt or anything else. 10K gives you a room upgrade but not sure if you can book a suite with points. I have always managed to get suite upgrades with carefully worded emails to the GM....... I never tried it with the Radisson though.
